Choosing organic products is an option that more and more people are making. More and more evidence is pointing to the fact that the chemicals in non-organic products can have negative health outcomes for people, including cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. Our skin is the biggest organ on our body and the products we use on it can be absorbed through the skin into our bodies. Organic skin care products are the smart choice. Listed below are just a few more benefits of organic skin care products.
Not only will using organic products reduce the amount of chemicals you expose your body to on a daily basis, it is safer for your skin. According to the USDA, certified organic products must contain 95% organic ingredients. They are also extracted naturally and have very little processing. This means that you are putting only natural ingredients on your skin which also means there are less negative side effects (dry skin, allergic reactions, etc.).
Switching to organic skin care products is good for the environment. Other products use harsh chemicals and those chemicals are typically extracted from places like our beautiful rainforest. Miles of land are destroyed every year to provide products with harsh chemicals that could ultimately result in negative health issues for the consumer. It doesn’t make sense!
Packed with Nutrients
Because organic products are created with natural ingredients, the consumer gets the benefit of all of the nutrients in these products. Nutrients like white tea, castor oil, cocoa butter and tea tree oil can help naturally combat premature aging, thinning hair, dry skin, and even acne.
Listed above are just a few reasons why making the switch to organic skincare products is a smart choice. It is a healthier option that could aid in avoiding deadly diseases, it is better for the environment and it ends up giving the consumer naturally added nutrients. There are some great organic products on the market right now. EOS lip balm is certified organic, smells great, won’t break the bank and provides hours of moisturizing relief. Shampoos, conditioners or hair masks with Jamaican black castor oil, can help moisturize your scalp which helps with dryness and dandruff while also promoting hair growth. Lastly, Bare Minerals is one of the leading organic makeup lines and they have a plethora of natural products that have a variety of benefits for your skin, while improving your appearance.
